The minister explained the reasons for this decision, stressing that “history has shown that the Kingdom of Morocco has never stopped carrying out hostile acts against Algeria.” He also held “the kingdom’s leaders responsible for the repeated crises that have worsened”, a behavior that “leads to conflict rather than integration into the region” of the Maghreb.
In a statement issued on Tuesday evening, the Moroccan Foreign Ministry expressed its regret at Algeria’s “completely unjustified and expected” decision, denouncing the “logic of escalation” and rejecting the “false and even absurd pretexts that lie behind it.” At the end of July, King Mohammed VI expressed his regret at the “tensions” with Algeria, calling on Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune to “give wisdom to the throne” and “work in harmony for the development of relations” between the two countries.
Last Wednesday, the Algerian Supreme Security Council, headed by President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, decided to “review” relations with Morocco, which is accused of being involved in the deadly fires that swept the north of the country.
According to an Algerian official statement, “the continuous hostilities committed by Morocco against Algeria have called for a review of relations between the two countries and the intensification of security controls on the western borders.”
